Plane makes emergency landing at Fermilab

BATAVIA – A small plane safely made an emergency landing Sunday afternoon on Fermilab property, Fermilab spokesman Andre Salles confirmed in an email Monday.

The plane landed about 4:25 p.m. Sunday in a field near Wilson Street east of Kirk Road, according to Salles.

The plane’s pilot had taken off from DuPage Airport in West Chicago, began to experience engine trouble and needed to land, Salles confirmed.

The pilot, who was the only occupant of the plane, was able to land and was uninjured.

Salles in a second email described the incident as minor. Federal Aviation Administration officials visited Fermilab property after the landing and said there would be no investigation, Salles wrote.
